Our front yards can be a huge struggle. Hiring a landscaping team is expensive, and doing it yourself can be difficult and pricey on its own. Plus, once you have the entire front yard to your liking, it might only look great during the day. At night, you have to figure out how to make your front yard match the aesthetics of the day without overpowering the yard with a ton of lights.
During the winter holidays you can add lights and decorations galore. But a string of rainbow lights on your home's trim doesn’t look quite as inviting in July as it does in December.

The kind of light can be a lamp, a spotlight, or any other kind of light you envision fits with the overall aesthetic of your home.
Think of this light as a spotlight. You want it to accentuate all that work you’ve put into how your yard looks during the day, so consider placing the light to shine on a single tree or your favorite
